I have a 3D file which draw in Solidwork18 and I convert it to URDF file by using SWTOURDF tools. After converting, I have a folder which have: launch folder, mesher folder, urdf folder, config folder, CMakeLists.txt and package.xml. How can I run urdf file in ROS?

You don't run URDF files, they define robots or parts of robots. They will be read by other nodes to control or simulate them. So the question is what do you want to do with your URDF file?
